Bengaluru: Three postgraduate medical students were subjected to an embarrassing situation when they were fined by the Malpractice Enquiry Committee of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Heath Sciences (RGUHS) for malpractice.
The students were caught cheating in exams using high-tech gadgets like Bluetooth devices and earpieces for copying.
Earlier, more than thirty students appearing for the medical and allied courses, were questioned by the committee after they were caught indulging in various kinds of exam malpractice, sources said.
It may be recalled that few months ago, students at the RGUHS were booked for tampering with answer scripts.
As per the rules, using Bluetooth devices and earpieces would attract a fine of Rs 20,000, being debarred from two exams and cancellation of results.
One of the RGUHS officials speaking to sources said, “CCTV cameras installed in exam centres are not always functional. The blatant nature of these malpractices shows that it cannot be done without the connivance of the college management.
